Crispy Smashed Potatoes Recipe With Capers: Crunchy Potatoes That Are Sweet, Salty & Irresistible

Salty capers mingle with sweet honey and sharp Dijon mustard to create a flavor explosion in this crispy smashed potatoes recipe. You will be a fan at first bite.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 55 to 60 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour

Servings: 4 to 6


Here's how to make it: 

  1. Put the potatoes in a large pot of water that just covers the top of the potatoes. Add the vinegar and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil until the potatoes are pierced easily with a fork, about 20 to 30 minutes depending upon the size of the potatoes. Once the potatoes are tender removed from the heat and drain. Let them cool a bit before handling them.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together the capers, mustard, honey and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.
  3. Pour the drained potatoes out onto a large rimmed baking sheet. Using a potato masher or heavy bottomed glass, gently press down or “smash” the potatoes until they are about 1/2-inch round. Drizzle olive oil over the top, season with kosher salt and black pepper.
  4. Place in a preheated 425-degree F oven for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, remove the potatoes from the oven and spoon over the top about half of the caper mixture. Give the pan a gentle shake to distribute the dressing. Place back in the oven for another 20 minutes or so or until the potatoes start to become brown and crispy on the edges.
  5. When the potatoes come out of the oven, spoon over the remaining caper mixture.
